Publisher's description: Hermeneutic Chaos is a critically acclaimed journal that seeks to present the finest poetry and prose without beseeching any to compromise on its excellence by conforming to a particular normative literary style. It is an endeavor to showcase all that art is capable of, from the humble nonchalant to the vehement procrastinated profundity. It will publish poetic and prosaic interpretations of human sensations as they alchemize the humdrum wallflowers into spirited animations.
We look for beautifully handcrafted semantic mindscapes which provoke secluded emotions to emerge and clash with words with all their infinite capacities, making them perspire. We wish to witness the manner in which the absence finds its presence by wringing the silence. All this, however, with a certain aesthetic humility.
We welcome you to explore and participate in the engendering and raising the wonder that is the word-a bare whisper caressing the light on the bosom of a chartreuse tinted leaf, a fragile dew drop sheepishly marveling its masterpiece on the grass tips, or a distant chirp which befriends a lonely seashell lying on the shore.
